It is no big surprise that when people think of “gummies”, what comes to mind is a type of candy vitamin for children. Indeed, gummy bear vitamins have been providing a regular source of nutrition for children for many decades. It was the perfect solution for parents to ensure that their child met daily nutritional requirements and for children to enjoy a sweet goody at the same time.
These days, there is a new gummy in town—CBD gummies—and adults are enjoying their benefits as much as children do with vitamin gummies. CBD gummies offer a discreet and easy way to ingest CBD and are growing in popularity while becoming a daily part of peoples’ health routines.
What are CBD Gummies?
Simply put, CBD gummies are sweet, chewy candies infused with cannabidiol, also known as CBD which is a non-intoxicating extract from the hemp plant. CBD is one of the many naturally occurring compounds found in hemp and is used for supporting the body and mind in various beneficial ways. First, a brief explanation on how CBD works.
The human body contains an extensive network of receptors known as the Endocannabinoid system. This system helps keep our bodies balanced even when we encounter negative external factors that impinge on our wellbeing. CBD serves to support the receptors in our Endocannabinoid system by giving support to many of the body’s physical processes.
Benefits of CBD Gummies
How do CBD gummies provide support to the body? They offer many benefits to health such as relief from everyday stress and anxious feelings, a sense of calm for focus, recovery from exercise-induced inflammation and support for a restful sleep.
CBD gummies are a tastier way to take CBD than capsules or tinctures while giving you a sugar boost in addition. Hence, they are easy to take along to work or on trips. Taking a couple of gummies before a stressful meeting or event can help you maintain your composure. Bear in mind though, that you might not feel the effects of CBD gummies immediately after taking them. This is due to the time it takes for the gummies to be digested and work its way into your bloodstream and begin to have an impact. Allow yourself about an hour to fully absorb it and to start to feel its positive effects.
Using CBD Gummies
CBD comes in many forms including tinctures, sprays, capsules, topicals and of course, CBD gummies. Our new edibles brand, Aller Manger [“al-ay mahn-jay”], which means “to eat” in French, brings you the highest quality, all-natural and flavourful CBD Fruit Bites. Our Fruit Bites are made with real fruit puree and are vegan and do not contain gelatin, so there is no artificial after-taste, but just pure, sweetness in every bite. Available in three delicious flavors—Ginger & Lemon, Mango, or Guava—our formulations are broad spectrum CBD so they do not contain THC, which is the intoxicating substance in the cannabis plant. In other words, they will not make you “high”. Each Fruit Bite contains 50mg of cannabinoid which is one of the strongest dosages available in the market.
If you are just beginning to use CBD, make sure to start slow, despite their delicious flavour. Start by taking one Fruit Bite per day for a few weeks and monitor how your body reacts, then add a few more if required. Or take half in the morning, then another half in the evening. The dosage choice is yours..
CBD gummies are no doubt becoming the edible treat of choice for busy individuals who care about their well-being and it is easy to see why. They are easy and discreet to ingest, offer a number of health benefits and are very portable. If you have been interested to try CBD, Aller Manger’s Fruit Bites are a great choice to get started and integrate into your daily routine. And the best part is that they are tasty too!
